As if things haven’t been disappointing enough already for 5-5 Mississippi State, the Bulldogs are going to have to try and get bowl eligible in their final two games without one of their safeties.

Coach Dan Mullen confirmed today that sophomore Nickoe Whitleyyes, that guy (pictured) — has a ruptured Achilles tendon  and will miss the remainder of the season.

Whitley had 30 tackles, four interceptions and a forced fumble in eight games this season before missing the last two games against Tennessee-Martin and Alabama.

Although the SEC West has been stacked this year, it’s nevertheless been a rough season for a team that had higher expectations following a nine-win season a year ago and Gator Bowl victory. MSU’s best chances at getting back to a bowl this year likely come in their season-ending game against Ole Miss.
